ROADS connecting the tiny municipality of Chercos with Macael and with Cobdar are set to undergo upgrades under Diputacion de Almeria plans.
The provincial government has announced an investment of €350,000 in works on the two roads, which will include resurfacing on sections where it is in a poor state of repair and improvements to drainage.
The Diputacion said the works would improve connectivity between the 14-square kilometre municipality, population less than 300, with nearby villages and towns in the Almanzora valley, as well as in the Filabres-Alhamilla and Campo de Tabernas regions.
Diputacion Public Works deputy Oscar Liria underlined the importance of projects of this kind as part of the Provincial Highway Network Plan as they “improve communications to the smallest municipalities and maintain roads with the greatest amount of traffic in the best condition, and those which have a higher volume due to being located in industrial or commercial zones and to Almeria province’s main tourists centres.”
In the specific case of Chercos, Liria commented that the works did not only mean the improvements of roads used by residents of the municipality, but also support for a municipal company which forms part of the ‘Sabores Almeria’ brand marketing initiative, “facilitating the access of heavy vehicles for the export of jams and delicatessen products from the heart of Chercos to 11 countries.”
